    Went to Dr Dobalian after I moved from NY, was pre-diabetic, overweight with severe high blood pressure. Dr was kind, compassionate and intentional in his care and medication plan. A year later, my A1C is down 1.7 pts, blood pressure 120/75 and I'm down 80lbs. Dr Dobalian saved my life. I'm thankful that he not only cured me but cares about me as a patient - you can't find that anymore with Doctors nowadays.

    I was sitting in the reception area and heard the dr. and his wife argueing loudly in the back. Then he refused to give my grand daughter her birth control pills because she didn't want to take her cholesterol and diabetes medicine. He said he wasn't going to give her the bc pills until she started taking her other meds. She will never go back there.

    I do not recommend Dr.Dobalian for any patient who has a chronic illness. He did not want me to speak unless I was asked a question. You better answer his question exactly how he expects or he will brow beat you. He doesn't appreciate any added info either. He wouldn't give me a chance to talk about my medical history and the multiple abdominal surgeries and severe adhesions that entrapped nerves causing crushing pain. He told me to stop talking and listen to HIM. Not to interrupt.

    We were Blessed indeed to find / have Dr. Dobalian as our PCP. He listens. He gives very good advice (both Medical and Words of Wisdom from his experiences in the Medical field) and takes the time to discuss whatever is an issue and more. It has always been helpful to make a list of questions prior to the Appt. He will go down through each and every one. Excellent !!

    Will only give 2 weeks worth of Rx's to insure multiple appointments and/or orders needless bloodwork ...don't bother telling him you have already had it done somewhere else. All about the money. Office visit no more than 10 minutes ,however, office charged my Insurance company for longer/more expensive charges.

    I have never found a better Dictor and staff in this area. If you are looking for the BEST!!!!!! Don't look anymore you found the BEST. I've been a patient for over three years and have referred 8 of my friends and they are still patients of Dr. D. His level of compassion and professionalism is unparalleled to any other experience with Doctor I've ever had!!!!!!! He is sooooo passionate about his work and really listens!!!!!! He builds relationship his office and staff are truly amazing !!!!

    Dr Dobalian was clearly most concerned about his own financial gain, not the health of his patients.

    One of the best Dr in preventive care medicine . Very honest and targeted my problem from the first visit while others failed . I Recommend him without reservation.

    I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Dobalian. If you want a hand holder this is not the right doctor for you. If you want to be seen promptly by a physician that is beyond incredibly competent.... You will find that in Dr. Dobalian. If you are a legal drug addict..... don't even walk through the door.

    My grown son saw him and he said he was OK. Didn't really solve the issues going on with him. He did find other things - told him his cholesterol was up, blood pressure but it was within the normal range. The biggest issue is the payment. Even if you have insurance they make you pay in full up front. Then they will not return money they owe you. They owed me over a $100 at one time and when he went back they wanted $120.00 more. They currently owe me now 9 months later and refuse to pay me back.
